Then they sent 2 issues, then several nasty letters from a bill collector. I hadnt given them my ssn so it couldnt effect my credit, but it was rather upsetting to get those when they seem to of lost my check to begin with. I ended up doing a BBB compliant to get it resolved and they ended up giving me a year subscription.
I accidentally mailed a check for, a loan payment to First American Bank, to the State of Virginia. Stuck the check in the wrong envelope.
Danged if they didn't cash it.

I've had the same experience, but involving the wrong check in wrong envelope to both a supplier and a utility company. Both checks were cashed. The utility was overpaid and the supplier was underpaid. Fortunately I was able to rectify the situation after I discovered the error.

What you may not realize is that nowadays checks are all processed by automated systems. No human reviews whether a check is made out to the correct business or not.

When I worked for a bank we used automation for atm deposits, mailed checks, but anything taken to the branch was eyeballed. It caused a lot of problems as customers knew of the electronic processing and would see a teller to do something that slipped under the radar with no problems. This was usually 3rd party checks like a husbands pay check on an account that just listed the wife. Post dated checks to cash or deposit and checks that were not signed the same as the signature card.
